From the radio network's webpage:
Jan Lundberg is a former oil industry supply analyst who left the industry to immerse himself in the environmental movement with an emphasis on energy issues. He founded the Fossil Fuels Policy Action Institute in 1988. Projects included the Alliance for a Paving Moratorium, the Auto-Free Times, Pedal Power Produce, and CultureChange.org. The organization formed in 1999 its most enduring project, Sail Transport Network (STN), promoting the use of sail for cargo and passenger transport. STN is now a Partner of SAIL MED. Jan sailed from California to Greece decades ago, and after touring Europe in 2012 realized that the continent is currently at the center of the new sail transport movement.
